It is with great sadness that I announce the closing of Cerridwen's Teaching Circle. While we have had what I consider a great deal of interest in our group the attendance is not enough to keep going. I get unsolicited emails from local Pagans saying that they are so glad there is a local group but they only wish they had time to participate. It is a busy world we live in and I understand that it can be hard to find time for things. I have tried to keep the group open as long as possible so that folks can find the time to join us. We deferred dues so that the group was more accessible, lowered our age limit to 18 at the request of potential members, and even tried to have more meetings where members can bring their children so that child care wouldn't be an obstacle.
Unfortunately it has reached a point where I can no longer keep the circle open. I can no longer afford to cover all of the group's costs. For time, money and health reasons no longer can I cover the responsibilities of multiple offices and be responsible for the presentations. Sadly this means that as there are not enough active members to take over these functions the circle must close.
I will keep our website here and Facebook page active for a bit, and if we get a sufficient amount of folks interested in reopening the circle by this fall then perhaps we will give it another go.
To all those who I have met and spoken with through CTC, it has been a pleasure and I wish you all the best on your journeys.
